Sound like a real hit by please feel free to check it out

After a bit of comparison it seems to me that the only tune on this album that has been previously released is Inertia Creeps (Floating On Dubwise) which is identical to Back/She Comes. While all other versions are similar to those that exist on Singles 90/98 they are indeed alternate dubs. I still do agree with CtheB that I would love to have seen dubs of the rest of the songs from the original album especially Mezzanine as that's my favorite track from it. Here's to hoping some Mad Professor versions surface!

My copy didn’t include a download code. Anyone else? Also, is that front sticker removable?

These are supposedly previously unreleased dub mixes, but "Inertia creeps (floating on dubwise)" seems to be the previously released "Back/she comes", which appeared on the "Inertia Creeps" single and the "Singles 90/98" boxed set, both 1998.

As for the rest, I'm disappointed that most of these tracks are ones for which a Mad Professor remix was already available; I'd hoped that there would be dub mixes of "Dissolved girl", "Man next door", "Black milk", and the title track. They would have made this a more worthwhile standalone release.

Because of "No Protection" I travelled to see the Mad Professor live in Vienna. No letdown here - superb remixes from MA's masterpiece. 5 out of 5 stars.

The prettiest looking record and nastiest dubs. Love the sound of this album - many highlights. Must find out why its taken so long to surface.

Good to hear. I purchased this blind on the strength of the original and, of course, No Protection. Look forward to my copy arriving in the mail

As a dub fan, and of the opinion that Mezzanine is a 10/10, I came into this with great expectations. I tend to shy away from remix projects, and dub for me can be a very fine line, i.e. 70's era focused. So with all of that, I'm here to say that this album is essential.
